Two new sources of information from Arthritis Care – a guide for young people, and information about working and arthritis – were highly commended at this year’s British Medical Association Patient Information Awards.

The Breakout guide is written by, and for young people with arthritis, and covers a wide range of lifestyle issues and experiences.

The section of Arthritis Care’s website on working with arthritis gives practical information about how to stay in work, or return to work. There is guidance for employers and health professionals on how to help a person with arthritis and information on the support that is available. This section was supported by the Department for Work and Pensions.

Arthritis Care also received commendations for six recent factsheets on ankylosing spondylitis, gout, fibromyalgia, polymyalgia rheumatica, repetitive strain injury and opioid patches.

The Patient Information Awards encourage organisations to produce accessible, well-designed and accurate information that helps people to understand their health and to participate in their health care. There was much more competition this year with a third more entries than in previous years.

‘With so many websites and leaflets around, we are pleased our efforts to provide accurate, impartial and well presented information have been recognised by a highly respected medical organisation,’ said Kate Llewelyn, Arthritis Care’s head of information services.
